CM: no names at all

Chandigarh: Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Friday prohibited names of government functionaries, including ministers and MLAs, on foundation stones and inaugural plaques. All projects and programmes would be dedicated to the people of Punjab. However, there was no bar on government functionaries and leaders inaugurating or laying the foundation stones.

Patiala, April 14

Apparently miffed at his name appearing third on the inauguration stone of an academic block, Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, Punjab Minister for Forests, Printing and Stationery, reportedly threatened the principal of a government school with “suspension”.

On Thursday morning, Dharamsot arrived at Government Senior Secondary Girls School, Nabha, for the  inauguration of the school block raised on the initiative of two former students in memory of their mother Santosh Kumari.

He noticed that his name was inscribed below that of Santosh Kumari’s two daughters. Agitated, the minister pulled up principal Nishi Jalota for not following “protocol”. His video threatening the principal went viral. Work on the block, comprising 14 rooms, was started in 2012 with Santosh Kumari’s daughters, one an IRS officer and the other a doctor, setting up a trust and collecting Rs 50 lakh. The rest of the amount was collected by teachers, students and some good Samaritans and the project approved by the government.

One of the teachers said the minister had been invited as a special guest, as mentioned in the invitation card, and that “there was no reason why he should have misbehaved”.

The principal said she was taken aback by the minister’s reaction. “Santosh Kumari’s daughters were our chief guests. The minister was here as a special guest. He was, perhaps, instigated by certain persons accompanying him,” she said. Dharamsot could not be contacted. However, in a video on the social media, he denied the allegations, maintaining he had no problem with his name appearing third, “but I do believe that the construction cost is rather high and there may be some hanky panky”.

The Congress manifesto mentioned that ministers/ MLAs would not lay stones or attend inauguration functions.
